In this class we are going to explore some of the techniques that the author uses to present a sense of place, time and mood from an extract in Charles Dickens’ gothic and glorious novel, ‘Great Expectations.' We will then spend some time analysing the techniques the author uses to create a sense of atmosphere.
The skills students learn in this class can then be applied to other texts across their English studies and give them confidence in answering exam questions.
